I receive alimony for my child. Is it tax free? #netherlands

Alimony received for a child is tax free since the law assumes that there is a natural obligation based on the relationship between the parent who left and the child.
So if alimony is agreed it is important that the agreement contains a specification of the alimony. Alimony for a child is tax free, alimony for the ex-partner is taxable.
